Why Inception Is One of the Best Movies of Our Generation




What You Missed About Inception:

For me, a truly great film isn’t really like a masterpiece. A masterpiece, after all, is more about critical praise and the apex of one’s career. Inception is great in a different way. It’s just smart. It didn’t receive universal, critical praise (though it got some) because it completely went over the heads of almost everyone.

For all of you who think you “get” the movie, I sincerely doubt that more than a handful actually caught everything that was going on in the story.

Here’s a test to see if you did: do you think the ending was a cliffhanger? Because if you did, you are dead wrong.

With Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar coming out this week, I thought it would be fun to revisit one of the first fan theories I ever wrote. I wrote this piece about Inception and it’s myriad secrets back in 2013, and I’m still finding more reasons for why it’s one of the best films, period. And why most people don’t seem to fully grasp how important it was.

Check it out here in case you haven’t had a chance to read it.

  1. I think Inception is the best movie ever made! Followed by The Dark Knight! I loved the movie very much and later I started reading about dreaming and lucid dreaming and it made me realize how great Inception was! This article made me love it even more! Christopher Nolan is just brilliant! Dreaming is a great thing that needed to be explored and appreciated and Nolan did that pretty well!


  2. Inception sucks. Its boring, has too many characters and who cares about any plot twists. Prestige is Nolan’s best movie and Nolan is overrated anyway. Barry Lyndon for example is one of the best movies ever made and 100000 times better than Inception. Please watch more movies.
